Zucchini Boats with BBQ Chicken and Parmesan

Ingredients (2 servings)

1 halved zucchini (seeds removed)
1 chicken breast (made with Sous Vide) and cut into small cubes
½ BBQ sauce
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
¼ tsp turmeric
¼ tsp garlic powder
olive oil in a spray
dried cranberries
spinach for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh out (you can also trim the ends off at this point or while you are eating).
  3. Put zucchini in a greased baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Add chicken breast (if you made it in Sous Vide), sprinkle with turmeric, garlic powder, BBQ sauce, and parmesan.
  5. Bake for about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Add cranberries and spinach for decoration.


  1. If you are using Sous Vide to prepare meat, my suggestion is to cook on 160 degrees F (75 degrees C) for 1,5 hours (2 hours if it was frozen).
  2. If you do not have Sous Vide, put the chicken breast in a skillet over medium heat and cook for about 10 minutes.
  3. You can mix zucchini pulp with chicken if you prefer.
  4. If you do not like BBQ sauce, you can skip that step.
  5. Spinach can be replaced by parsley or basil leaves, whatever you like.
  6. When I serve as a lunch meal, I usually add rice and serve below zucchini (see picture below).
